Zoya Paradise Sun Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! Zoya released 2 sets for summer 2015. The Paradise sun consists of 6 metallic pearls. Island Fun is a set of 6 beautiful cremes that compliment the metallics.
I planned on having both collections on the blog today but unfortunately, this happened:
MAN DOWN!! This was my first broken bottle ever. Zoya is sending a replacement, so it may be another week until I get the cremes up. 

The Paradise Sun collection is described as "Fully saturated with a gorgeous micronized metallic sheen, these shimmering beauties are much like sunshine sparkling on water. Meant to be used as an independent color, these shades feature a full-coverage, densely pigmented formula."

*Notes: All are topped with HK Girl.

Oceane is described as a "True turquoise with a micronized metallic pearl finish that reflects the clearest blue ocean waters." This was almost a 1 coater! This one did cause a bit of staining on my cuticles. 2 coats.
Isa is described as a "Deep blue-based purple with a micronized metallic pearl finish and an aqua flash that embodies the beauty of exotic island flowers." This too, could nearly be pulled off with one coats. No issues. 2 coats.
Mae is described as a "Warm magenta pink with a micronized metallic pearl finish, reminiscent of vibrant Mediterranean flowers." Such a lovely pink! No issues. 2 coats.
Genesis is described as a "Crystalline white with a micronized metallic pearl finish. Designed to look like micro-fine diamond dust!" I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this one. No issues. 2 coats.
Selene is described as a "True teal with a micronized metallic pearl finish. A unique shade with an aqua fleck that resembles deeper layers of ocean water." I was very disappointed with this one. Gorgeous color, smooth application, but it stains HORRIBLY. 2 coats.
Aphrodite is described as a "Vibrant summer red with a micronized pearl metallic finish and multi-hued flash that brings it to life." This one is easily my favorite of the bunch. It reminds me of Orly's Fireball. It has an almost jelly like consistency. 3 coats.
This collection can be purchased at Zoya.com for $9 each or $54 for the entire set.
